This Akessons 100% Brasil cocoa and nibs chocolate bar is smooth, woody and earthy. Subtle in acidity, it has also expressive notes that evoke scents of autumn and tobacco. In addition, cocoa nibs are given for extra crunch and genuine flavor. The Akessons 100% Brasil is crafted with cacao beans from the Fazenda Sempre Firme plantation right in the middle of the Mata Atlantica, the wild forest with the highest biodiversity on earth. In other words, they are growing the traditional and astonishing Forastero cocoa variety called “parasinho” that made the cacao glory of Bahia at the beginning of the 20th century.
